GP2X game

Nomis 0.5
Nomis Screenshot

A simple memory/pattern game written in C with the SDL libraries and Karl Bartel’s SFont code for the bitmap font drawing routines. Watch the computer choose a sequence of button presses, then repeat the pattern using the A B Y X buttons. So far I couldn’t do more than 15 steps.

Note to any blind GP2X gamers: Press Y for dog barking, B for honking, X for laser, and A for the hand clap.

The source code is included for educational purposes (i.e. how to write messy code). This program helped me get into GP2X development.

INSTALLATION:
Copy the Nomis folder to anywhere on your SD Card. All artwork and wav files must be in the same folder as Nomis.gpe.

BUTTON CONFIGURATION:
Start – Start Game
Select – Quit Game

A, B, Y, and X activate the colored buttons.

What Have I been watching?

Here is my Netflix rental list from the past 90 days (these are movies that I watched). I’ve enjoyed every one of these movies (spare maybe 2), and I wonder why that is. Have I been very careful when selecting? Or have I just been lucky? I think maybe it is because I’ve watched each one alone — therefore the movie becomes more immersive. Furthermore, when the movie is over and you’re reminded of the reality that you live in, you wish the movie hadn’t ended. I guess this is how I decide if a movie is good or not.
